My wife and 3 young kids took some time out of our busy lifestlye to spend Christmas in Hodson Bay. My wife works in the public sector and I work in the hospitality industry and we decided to spend this Christmas away from home.
We were abit nervous bringing the kids away from home as they are aged between 3 and 6 but we never looked back.
We arrived on Christmas eve for our 3 day break. We were greeted with open arms and friendly smiles from all the staff.
The hotel has geat facilities for kids. They have a kids camp which is great where the kids meet new friends and place lots of games. They have computer games and pool tables for the kids.
We dinned in the restaurant on 2 nights, the food was tip top, truly tasty.
There was a great buzz around and the bar had great live music every night.( The beer & wino also very good!!)
My wife paid a visit to the spa and she was still talking about it on the way home, she is planning a girly trip away in the next couple of months just to go back.
The Leisuse Centre is state of the art, a really modern and spacious place. Great views out over the lake.
Overall our stay was flawless and we are already planning our next trip back.
Hopefully before next Christmas.
